A group of eight friends representing Penelope Payroll and Ullyott Accountants in Driffield completed the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge of 24.5 miles in 11 hours. Their efforts raised over £3000 for the David Nesfield Charity Fundraiser, which supports Air Ambulance, Gamekeepers Welfare Trust and Pinderfields Hospital.
The primary aim of the challenge was to raise enough money to buy a lightweight wheelchair for David Nesfield, a gamekeeper on the Burton Agnes estate, who suffered a life changing accident last summer, which left him paralysed.
“I would like to say a really big thank you to all those who kindly sponsored us.” said Samantha Ullyott “It was a mountainous challenge, but it makes all our aches and pains worthwhile!”
“We all trained hard for the walk, and the support we have received has been unbelievable. The view from the summit of the highest Peak; Whernside was spectacular. Determination got us through, and the thought that we are walking for those who can’t walk.” commented Laura Nesfield, daughter of David.
The group of walkers taking part in the event were: Samantha Ullyott, Martin Tuttle, Sharon Falkingham, Julie Bulmer, Andrew Bulmer, Laura Nesfield, Tom Jackson and Sally Fenton.
Donations can still be made through the practice at 6 George Street, Driffield, through PayPal on the Ullyott website www.ullyott.co.uk/payments or make a bacs payment – details of which are on the Ullyott website.
